This message comes from Allan Kleiman, whom some of you may remember as having been the presenter for a TSLAC Serving Older Populations workshop a few years ago.
"Because we have had so many requests about the project, below you can find links to news stories and photos about "senior spaces."If you have any additional questions, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to add to the blog at: seniorspaces.blogspot.com over the summer.
Here are the links:
